Meeting the Spiritual Needs of our Diverse Congregation

Shir Ami provides different styles of worship that help meet the spiritual needs of our congregation.  We gather every Friday night for a Shabbat service that features both traditional liturgy and contemporary music and poetry.

Most of our services begin at 7:00 p.m. and are approximately one hour long. Once per month we offer an Intergenerational Shabbat service that is oriented toward children and families, but truly reaches all people. Rabbi Briskin shares a topical sermon, a d’var Torah (commentary on the weekly Torah portion), or a story almost every week.

Our extraordinary volunteer choir accompanies Cantor Kohlbrenner several times a year.  Periodically, a group of our talented instrumentalists add musical depth and beauty to our Friday night worship for Shir Shabbat.  Throughout the year, we offer a Torah reading on select Friday nights. This enables members of our community who regularly come,  but are unable to join us regularly for Shabbat morning services (when Torah is traditionally read) to hear words of Torah. During this service in particular, we take the opportunity to celebrate members of our community with various honors during the Torah service.

On Shabbat morning our B. Mitzvah service is open to all.  Our less formal, Chevrat Torah Shabbat Morning Minyan meets every Saturday morning at 10:15am.  Mostly in person, sometimes on Zoom only.    We also offer Torah on the Trails, a contemplative Shabbat walk through Tyler State Park, and a Shabbat Morning walk/run along the Delaware River Towpath in Washington Crossing.  Be sure to check our calendar for specifics.

We hope that one or more of our options for Friday night or Shabbat morning worship speak to you and that when you join us, you will feel uplifted and enriched.
